finally thought fuck it and signed up..anyone else done or doing it and had good results
I am, 65 pounds down since May last year, best health decision I've ever made
What is it
Richard Howey Life Plan or Team life plan. You can browse it on internet, helps you change you life, training and food relationships to lose weight for life.
Stuff you can do yourself or SW or other organisations. You find or do whatever works for you, excuse the pun, but no one size fits all in anything. You pays your pounds to lose pounds whatever diet or exercise you choose.
That's life a decision based skill, you get right or wrong or ignore for medical reasons, laziness or loads of other reasons.
Just find one that works for you and use as and when required, like everything in moderation. Hope this helps!
aka @supersesh on here.
My work mate started it but couldn't manage the calories (3500 cals to lose weight IIRC - he's 20 stone+) or steps needed everyday.
Lots of good info on there but a little disappointed to see certain foods start to be demonised, such as full fat milk, IIFYM IMO.
what he couldn't manage to eat 3500 or was going over that everyday
he couldn't manage to cram that much food in. I assume the plan relies on high calories but also high amount of calories burnt to fure up the metabolism but with having a sedantary job he was struggling to hit his steps.
I have been given a goal of 3,000 like....never usually do anywhere near that during the week
are you meant to track calories burnt from exercise on top of your steps? I can't remember.
He now does what I do, uses a calorie calculator I've had success with, take 500 off a day to get your cutting calories. When he exercises he uses a chest strap to count calories burnt and eats them back, keeping his metabolism fired up. Plenty of water to keep hydrated, protein is set at 1g per 1lb of LBM, fat and carbs split anyway you like, 30g fibre.
that's what I asked and they were like no... because ive already said I go to the gym 3 times a week they were like we have still factored that into your goal.....but what if I decide to go 5 times a week or go nuts and do 2 gours of hard cardio and burn an extra 1500 cals a few days a week surely that means you loose more than the goal of 1llb or 2llb a week
yer that's why I always put my calorie expenditure as sedentary and try track cals manually using a chest strap, my expenditure varies week and week due to home life.
We Don't demonise no food, just tell people to be smart with calorie intake.
Fella on 3500 cals averaged 4000+ to maintain his weight 100%
Some people put their trust in us some dont. Those who do get results every time. It's just building the trust enough to win them over that's the hard part.
IF you decide to change your amount of gym workouts then just update your setting on the app and it will adjust your calories Best of luck mate, hope you smash it/
Fantastic, over the moon to see this
sound cheers, my mate has been getting good results so im hoping for the same
I have lost over 30 kg in 4 years as steroids were reduced. Knackered liver repaired itself, borderline high blood pressure, well under now, borderline Type 2 diabetic fine now.
Having problems at minute with medication, Lupus or Leaky Heart valve or so they are testing for. Flatly refused increase in steroids, but have to see specialist hmpph.
Last Feb I was 14 stone 10 lbs, now gone back from 10 stone 8 to 11 stone 4 because been off diet a month, unable to train and the new medication had steroids in a high dose which has caused mega problems with weight and health.
But to be honest, I find it simple to lose weight everything in moderation including full fat milk. Only one fact to remember and nothing magic, no forumula or special foods:
Eat less calories than you burn. Simples!
I can lose pounds stopping bread for two weeks, but I am a bread monster, that is my hardest thing. I use my Fitbit Surge to exercise, monitor my sleep and calorie count and water intake.
But some use SW, or other organisations, loads of various ways, you just have to find what works for you. No two experts agree and while they do good jobs, no one knows your own body better than you.
Experts do not provide motivation, that is a personal thing, they do however provide the tools to allow you to motivate yourself.
The burning question is do you stop making excuses and how badly do you want it. It is you and only you that can provide the answer by choosing your option.
Just go for it, no trial runs or practices, give it your best go you owe it to yourself, although it may benefit others as well. Good luck to you all, see you on the forum.
By the way not disrespectful of any expert just found what worked for me!
I’ve just had a health assessment through work and my maintenance goal is stated as 3,800 currently.
bork. Must be at the gym 5 times a week are you?
But squat bench and a deadlift variation every day.
Just signed up. Been set 2500 cals. Set myself 10k steps. Starts tomorrow.
Know the theory. Just wanted some motivation. Will post how I get on
In my very limited knowledge of dieting (I’m 19 stone myself but I don’t give a fuck and that’s the difference, mind I am 6ft 6)....
How did your mate struggle to consume so many calories? If we’re being absolutely brutally honest, to end up at 20 stone the bloke has been putting that, and probably more, away for years. I could understand struggles to hit protein/fibre/steps/exercise/low calories but struggling to hit high calories seems very very odd to me.
He ended up that big through drink I’d imagine
